I Have to Bring in Two Very Large Plants

I would like advice on repotting/down sizing the plants into smaller containers to make them more managable and easier to get into the house for winter. I live in the tidewater area and the two plants have to be moved via a hand truck in and out seasonally. Rather than let them die, I want two split them up into smaller pots. Need guidance.
